John Dziegel was sentenced today in Freehold. He was convicted after a three-week trial March 7 on two second-degree charges of distribution and a fourth-degree count of possession. He’s also ordered to pay a $2,500 criminal fine.

Jurors accepted the prosecutor’s contention that Dziegel used file-sharing software to copy images and place them in a shared folder. Investigators say his computer contained hundreds of child pornography images when they seized it in late September 2007.

Detectives attached to Operation Silent Shield completed more than 40 arrests. The New Jersey State Police Digital Technology Investigations Unit led the raids and traced senders and receivers.

Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa urges anyone who knows of kiddie porn activities, or suspects exploitation or inappropriate contact with children through the web, to call the New Jersey Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Tipline: 1-888-648-6007.
